  • Notes 
    • Undocumented stories handed down in my (Winnie Eller Green) Eller family say our Gr. Gr. Grandfather Eller who lived in Germany was a sword-smith and father of eight sons. One son, George, was a gunsmith, so the story goes, and was forced to flee from Germany after killing a German warlord.

      He escaped into Holland and then rode a cattle boat to America. Records show he was in Rowan County, NC on 29 Dec 1842 when he married Rosena Goodman, [1]
